The Ovarian Cancer Association Consortium (OCAC)

UCAM (participant 2) is responsible for OCAC. The OCAC consortium includes studies of ovarian cancer with over 10,000 cases and 10,000 controls. The consortium has established a central database for genotype and basic lifestyle data. A description is found at [http://dceg.cancer.gov/ovarian/].

Detailed guidelines for quality assurance of genotype wide data have been developed and four rounds of genotyping have been completed with the first joint paper being published in Cancer Research.
